Cars 3 Promotional Water Bottle: A Smart Marketing Trick

Cars is undeniably one of the most well-received Pixar-Disney animated movies of 2017. Fans from all over the world probably know all the characters' names by heart and they would probably recognize them on posters and other adverts. 

The success of Cars 3 is partly due to its effective marketing effort. Check out your local department stores, and you'll surely find a host of movie merchandise that will unleash your inner fangirl/fanboy. You'll find Cars 3 images printed on mugs, bags, lunch boxes, shoes, school supplies, and even bed sheets. They have been doing this marketing strategy since the first installment, and the result is a huge fan base and cool Cars merchandise that is worth collecting!

Just recently, Soltan has started giving away one free Cars 3 promotional water bottle for every purchase of 2 Soltan products. In an effort to improve their sales, they also advertised this on their security scanners at the entrance. The strategy is, of course, simple, yet significantly helped both brands achieve great results. 

What Can We Learn From This Collaboration?

  • Strategic Placing of Adverts: Welcoming the customers are two security scanners with posters promoting "2 Soltan + Free Cars 3 Water Bottle" combo. The idea is simple but the impact is great as people are informed beforehand that they would get FREE Cars 3 merchandise when they buy 2 Soltan products. Visually and mentally stimulating, the adverts condition fans to buy the product once they enter the store.
